I have children in Preschool (called Junior Kindergarten) and third grade. I could not be happier with the school and feel the decision to enroll my children here is one of the best decisions I have made. The teachers and staff are wonderful and really care for and about my children and family. I love that the learning extends beyond the classroom into other things as well, such as caring for a garden and taking care of chickens. This is the best school in Savannah, and I couldn't be prouder to be a part of this community.

We have a child in The Little School at Savannah Country Day and could not be more pleased. The faculty are amazing and truly care for each and every child!

I went to Country Day K-12 and can honestly say it prepared me so much for the rigor of academics I''m presented with in college. The Teachers were very well-educated and approachable, there was a vast array of clubs and sports to join, and the college counselor is available with advice from your freshman year. Now that I am studying engineering, I feel that I have an advantage to my peers who went to larger, public schools.
